The problem with their "solution" is that they are not updating their algorithm for recognizing malicious code, but they just added my files to their white-list instead, which is something that you could do by yourself if you follow the links from my previous post with their instructions for exclusions. Which is also kind of bummer because, if I understand correctly, when I release any new versions of my add-ons someone should submit these updated files to them again, so they could put such files to their white-list over and over.

I don't want to imply anything, but here is the part of message that I got from one user having the same problem with their anti-virus:
"After your first response to my concern, I ran two Web-based scans from major anti-virus solutions. Neither of them found fault with MagicNodes.vbs. Clearly, F-Secure had reported a false alarm. It's ratings had slid since I chose F-Secure, so I changed to another anti-virus solution."

I have received a message that the fasle positive issue would be resolved. I have checked but unfortunately it isn't resolved. I have let them know.
Will keep you posted.

I have uploaded all my free add-ons to F-Security and here is their answer:
"We downloaded the files from dropbox, and few of those files are indeed detected.
We have white-listed those detected files, and a new database update will be released to resolve this issue as well.

For the meantime, you may exclude this file from Real-time Scanning.Instructions for exclusions can be found here:

I removed the MN version with the extra features, and installed the free version. The same happens: I run a manual scan of the pc, this scan reveals no problems, I start MM with MN and it is fine, but when I restart MM with MN an hour later the scanner gives an error message and removes the MN file.
By the way if I scan the MagicNodes-4.3.2.mmip file manually, the scanner also reports an issue. So they did not resolve the issue as reported.
I did submit this as you requested and will keep you posted.

I don't understand how it has returned if nothing was changed. The anti-virus should work and report consistently.

Please try to install the freely available version of the add-on to see if the same thing will happen with it as well, then submit that version to F-Secure:

Sorry but after a few hours, the worm issue has returned. The virus scanner has removed magicnodes.vbs again.
Here's the info on the virusscanner:

Common Component Framework 2.50 build 214

CCF CUIF 10.05 build 275
CCF DAAS2 1.10 build 565
CCF Guts2 2.02 build 225

Let me know if it helps if I also report this issue.

I updated the virus scanner, reinstalled MN and ran a scan. All is fine now!
I only installed this scanner yesterday as a new customer. I assumed it would install the newest version, but obviously is doesn't.
Well, anyway: all is fine now. Thanks again for your fast and excellent support!

I got the response from F-Secure:
"The files you submitted is indeed clean. Our anti-virus product had a false alarm on this file earlier, however the problem is already fixed in the latest anti-virus update."

Do you have their latest version of anti-virus installed?

Thanks for the quick response, and sorry that I overlooked the other reports. I only looked in this thread.
Keep up the good work!

It is a false positive. F-Secure was already reported with the Export/Create Playlists add-on in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=85139

I have submitted the following report to F-Secure, waiting for their response:
"I am software developer and I have several add-ons for MediaMonkey which is Windows media application. I don't have your anti-virus software, but some users reported that it detected worms in two of my add-ons (e.g. viewtopic.php?p=425873#p425873). I suppose that your software will find suspicious any MediaMonkey add-on, be it mine or by another author. You could download and try some of MediaMonkey add-ons by another authors from here: http://www.mediamonkey.com/addons/. My add-ons are located here: http://solair.eunet.rs/~zvezdand/MediaMonkeyAddons.htm

I guarantee that my add-ons are not malicious nor they contain any malware. My computer is not infected, I have installed Avast anti-virus software always standing in the memory, I am not using any untested software and most certainly I have no intentions to write and distribute malware by myself. I am writing MediaMonkey add-ons for last 10 years and for all that time nobody had any such problems with them.

Please do something about this, I don't like to be false accused for something that I didn't do."

Hi, I installed a new virusscanner today and it reports that magicnodes.vbs has a worm: https://www.f-secure.com/v-descs/worm_w32_njw0rm.shtml
Is this a false positive, or do I really have an issue?

Hello all, I'm trying to create a sorting of album artist with different genre, virtually the same as the artist with different genre in magic nodes and i continue to run into complications. Any help is greatly appreciated.

How do you exclude a pairing of terms where you've already told it to include one of them,
as a silly example:

Let's say I want
<Title> Like '%Cream%' OR <Title> Not Like '%Cream Corn%'
or like,
<Title> Like '%Cream%' OR <Title> Not Like '%Corn%'
but anything with Cream will be included regardless because I asked it to include it, but I don't want it when it's
paired with certain terms like Corn.
